Humanoid robots, drones, self-driving cars, Internet of Things, smart cities, and many more, are just a few applications that the Department of Computer Engineering focuses on. So welcome to the fun. There is no better time than now to start your career as a computer engineer.
The department of Computer Engineering offers undergraduate and graduate programs since 1997. The B.Sc. program in Computer Engineering is ABET accredited. ABET is the most prestigious accreditation body in the United States for Engineering and Science. At the graduate level, the department offers M.Sc. in Computer Engineering and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering. All our graduate and undergraduate programs are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MoHESR). Moreover, our graduates qualify to pursue their Ph.D. degree in Engineering Management, which is a graduate program designed to blend different engineering technologies with management sciences. The Department of Computer Engineering contributes to the Ph.D. program in Engineering Management, as well as other Engineering programs.
Our offered degree programs are carefully designed to not only train students to be users of current technology, but rather to prepare them to be innovators for the next-generation technologies. Our alumni have successfully secured jobs in international companies like Amazon, Apple, and IBM. Our alumni have also pursued graduate degrees in top universities like the University of Toronto, the University of California San Diego, and the University of Sydney, to name a few.
Of all things, as a chair, I am proud of the active research that takes place by our faculty members. There are three funded research groups at the Department of Computer Engineering: Cyber Security, Robotics, and Distributed/Networked Systems. Our faculty members along with their teams of enthusiastic graduate and undergraduate students are performing innovative research in cutting-edge technologies and applications related to these three highly demanded research areas. I encourage our visitors to take a look at the research activities of the three research groups.
